This school has been tested many times by the elements and times been brought to its knees. Never giving in and now at its new home in Woodlands Montserrat the school continues to strive towards the goal of becoming a Centre of Excellence for education in Montserrat and beyond.
Interesting Montserrat Flag Facts:
The coat of arms on the Montserrat flag depicts Erin (the female figure – and a symbol of freedom for Ireland). Many of the Montserrat Island’s residents speak with an Irish brogue as a large number of Irish people were sent to Montserrat Island by Oliver Cromwell in the 17th century.
